K-State Slate: 1.8.15 - Purple Victory!

Basketball recaps, and a new coach is announced.

Some of our content from yesterday is a bit stale now, but here's the evergreen BracketCat with a recap of Wildcats in the NFL for the wildcard weekend.

Hey, Kansas State won a game! Now that you've experienced the joy (but mostly the relief) of victory, it's time to take a closer look, and the best place to start is TheBigE's recap: Kansas State 58, TCU 53.

Here are the rest of the obligatory game recaps:

The obvious storyline for the Wildcats is Marcus Foster and his return to form (Jeffrey Flanagan, FoxSports Kansas City). It may be premature to say he's back, though Foster was not shy about proclaiming it. Still, his 23 points (including 10 of 12 from the free throw line), and more importantly, 29 minutes of play coming off the bench were absolutely necessary for Kansas State, and it's good to see he still has it in him.

The women's team is hoping to Pack the House (as part of an NCAA initiative to improve attendance) for their game against Iowa State on Saturday. Tickets are priced at just $1 for all seats in Bramlage Coliseum. The Wildcats are the 2011 and 2012 "Pack the House" champions for the Big 12.

Yesterday, new soccer coach Mike Dibbini was formally introduced to the media. (Arne Green, Salina Journal). Dibbini noted the recruiting "above the level" is one of his strengths, and Kansas State will need to do just that, as the newest kid on the Big 12 soccer block.
